*The names and details of these courses vary by school. The intent is to give Middle School students a path to move from one track to another. "Condensed" is a placeholder for a variety of condensed and accelerated offerings, whereas "Pre-Algebra" is often a combination of Math 7 and Math 8. You should consult your middle school for details.
